Facebook recently added the feature to create a QR code and add the contacts using that QR code. Now, Instagram grabbed this feature too to make the following steps a bit easier then it is now. The Instagram QR code feature was in the trial last year in Japan and now it is available to everyone in the latest update.
This QR code feature work on the same concept as the WhatsApp and the Messenger QR code feature. This isn’t the first time Instagram got the QR code feature. If you remember, Nametags was the name of the QR code feature which Instagram rolled out back in 2018.
This feature is a bit different than that one because this QR code can be scanned via any QR code scanning tool. You don’t have to open the Instagram app every time you want to scan these codes and follow the user. You can just scan the QR code using any scanning tool and you will get a link to get redirected to the user’s profile.
